Saucony Triumph ISO Review

The latest addition to the Saucony Triumph series, the Saucony Triumph ISO version has been on the eyes of many runners that wanted to gauge this running shoe performance. The Saucony Triumph ISO does not disappoint in terms of technologies being used and features, the durability, cushioning and impact protection, it would be the best running shoes in the neutral category.

The ISO series is expanding real fast, especially that they have secured the top running shoe spot in trail and track running. Hopefully Saucony can keep this up and always provide us with the best running shoes.

Construction of the Saucony Triumph ISO

The Saucony Triumph ISO has a thicker midsole than usual, the PWRGRD+ cushioning offers great impact protection and comfort in the right places, is what makes this shoe great.  The GRID technology also transfer the shock during the heel to toe transition that improves the shoe performance.

The outsole of Saucony Triumph ISO features the XT-900 as main underside material, it is made from carbon rubber that offers durability and traction. While the IBR+ in the forefoot makes sure you have a responsive ride, it’s lightweight that improves the flexibility.

The upper part is made with ISOFIT design, this offers a customized fit that makes sure you have sock-like feeling, which every runners love (me!). The open toe box also adds comfort, gives you a better fit with seamless design. The upper part feels more structured because of the lightweight Support Frame. High elasticity sock liner inside that adds breathability.

Pros and cons


  • Offers great cushioning
  • Has the plush package, with enhanced PWRGRD+ cushioning
  • ISOFIT system was used in the shoe’s design, which improve the space inside the toebox


  • Expensive (according to other runners)
  • Bulky


The Saucony Triumph ISO offers support and stability with responsive and smooth ride, the plush package is a great addition for comfort and fit. Though, some runners find this bulky and not sexy (how come?). The price tag is what I think the downside for this shoe, though it is pretty good and will give you longer miles ahead.
